The Haybarn

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

The Haybarn

Postby Bob Perry » Tue Jul 03, 2012 1:19 pm

I wanted to get the hay out of the main barn. With everything that goes on there, I thought it could be a fire hazard. Plus now there's more room for tractors and trucks.

Exactly !!! Andy's moving home in September, so his Cub is coming up from Georgia. And then there's the one that's all in pieces, I'm thinking of throwing all the pieces on the truck and putting it together at Cecil's Cub Fest coming up.

Sounds like a plan. Don't forget the trailer, to bring the completed cub home again. Ed

I think your next project should be to train the goats to climb in the spreader to do their business. That would save a lot of work. :lol:

Multiple uses -- loading ramps to feed trough. I like it. :) :)

Bob:

Seems like a very nice project. Got a couple questions. What is the size of the Hay Barn and how many bales can you store in it? How many goats do you keep? We used to have a pair for milking when the kids were younger. All of the girls were lactose intolerant and could only drink goat's milk. It was a lot of fun having them and I kind of miss em now. But I don't miss the milking :lol:

Well the building is 12x10, and 10' high. Our bales are not much more than 45-50 pounds, and I put 40 left-over bales from 2011 in there, and there's room for at least 3 times that amount, plus more. So I'm going to guess 130-140. But we only use about 70-80 bales a year. I will fill up the barn because there are other family members who will need hay too. Just waiting for 2nd cutting to be ready.

We only have 3 goats: Hillary and Chelsea are sisters, and they are Alpines. Buck-a-roo is a mixed breed, nuetered male.

Some day we may have Hillary and Chelsea bred, but Alpines are not big milk producers.

They are a lot of fun to hand-feed and interact with. Goats really make great pets.

My goats have a "job" for the summer, they work for me. They do get lots of hand-fed snacks, but no grain or hay all summer. Their job is to nibble the weeds and grass around all my farm implements and things that are kept outside. Recently that area was all fenced in. No more weed-whacking, no more Round-Up, they do a fine job of keeping it all trimmed. From October to April, they will get grain and hay, but 6 months a year, they earn their keep !!!

Bob, alpines milk just fine, my first milker was an alpine and they seem a litttle more easy to work with then some. Calm disposition, not the butter fat of a Nubian but a nice milking goat. my.02

Huh well I never knew. But even if some day I find a Billy and they start lactating, I'd be unable to be there X2 every day, with my work schedule and everything. But thanks for your $0.02 !!!
